Australian Makers

Go ‘behind the scenes’ into factories, workshops and farms around the country to hear Australian Makers share their unique stories.

sonnen Australia

sonnen Australia is a highly innovative technology company now pioneering the manufacturing of Australian Made solar home batteries in the ex-Holden factory in Elizabeth South, South Australia – helping thousands of Aussie households access smarter, cleaner energy from the sun.

As one of the global market leader in smart solar energy storage, sonnen has installed more than 60,000 residential sonnenBatterie systems worldwide. The sonnenBatterie is an intelligent energy storage system which allows its owners to use solar electricity day and night, whilst also enabling homeowners to change the way that they manage and control their energy. It saves energy by storing the surplus energy generated by solar panels when it’s not needed and makes it available at times when it is needed.

sonnen’s ground-breaking battery is highly regarded for its technically robust build, high quality hardware and cutting-edge software intelligence. sonnen Australia proudly supported the transition of a number of former Holden staff members into the advanced manufacturing sector, stimulating Aussie employment and driving towards its mission to help Australia become a clean, green and sustainable country.

sonnen Australia, Chief Executive Officer, Nathan Dunn says: “there is a huge shift towards utilising renewable energy, not just locally but globally… being able to say that a sonnenBatterie is Australian Made is important to us because it supports employment locally and it supports the community.”

Ugg Since 1974

Meet UGG Since 1974 Directors Todd & Hannah Watts, a third-generation Australian family business handcrafting premium quality Australian sheepskin boots in Queensland, Australia. With more than forty-five years’ experience crafting UGG boots, the UGG Since 1974 heritage dates back to the 1970s, when UGG boots were first innovated in Australian backyards.

Under the watchful eye of a young sheep classer from the Australian country, it was then that the Ugg Since 1974 bespoke workshop started producing premium quality sheepskin boots and accessories, one piece at a time.

Almost five decades on, their UGG boots continue to be handcrafted from start to finish at their custom built workshop in South East Queensland, where the team works tirelessly to maintain quality workmanship, luxurious comfort and timeless style in each and every pair of UGG boots.

At UGG Since 1974, there are no conveyor belts or mass production of UGG boots. Instead, you’ll find one-of-a-kind leathers, the wooliest of Australian merino sheepskins, and UGG boots being artfully crafted by their talented makers, most of whom have mastered their craft over decades of practice and precision.

UGG Since 1974 Director Todd Watts says:
“I think there’s an appetite for local customers to buy locally made sheepskin boots, they get longevity, they get quality and they get reassurance that what they’re buying will last the test of time”.
